Sketchbook Pro v2.4, update for iPad 3

By Posted 20 Mar 2012, 08:59

You might fancy yourself as a bit of an artist or very well be one in a professional manner, but both the amateur and professional that don’t mind change can enjoy Sketchbook Pro for iPad. We installed Sketchbook Pro on Apple’s new iPad 3 today and found the app has jumped to version 2.4, which includes enhancements targeted at the new iPad.

The photo above shows Sketchbook Pro v2.4 running on my new 3rd generation iPad, and this means we benefit from bug fixes for the new iPad. These include improved importing of images, better brush performance, and also some better options thanks to the new power found on the 3rd Gen tablet.

Little enhancements in Sketchbook Pro v2.4 that make a difference – the latest update benefits from Retina display support on the new iPad, 18 layers at 1024×768 canvas and 6 layers at 2048×1536, which is a lot more than previous generations. You can also undo/redo up to 30 levels on iPad 3, which improves on 20 levels seen on iPad 2 and only 10 levels on iPad 1.

If you use Sketchbook Pro, how are you finding the latest update and especially if you’re running it on the new iPad? We’ve also included a few videos below to give you an idea of what is possible when drawing on an iPad, and we’re sure you’ll be impressed. The first video shows how to use the symmetry on Sketchbook Pro, and the second features a skull and crossbones drawing that took around 45 minutes but has been sped up for the video. In the last video you’ll see SketchBook Ink demoed on iPad 3, so feel free to leave a comment on that and the other videos below.
